Lamar Jackson suffered a knee injury early in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos at M&T Bank Stadium and did not return. After the game, Head Coach John Harbaugh said it's not a season-ending injury.

"It's a knee, but it's not a season-ending type of knee [injury]," Harbaugh said, saying he'll have more updates either Monday or Wednesday after further tests.

"It's going to be a number of days to weeks. We'll see. We'll see if he can go back this week. If not, it will be sometime after that shortly."

The injury happened when Jackson was sacked for a 6-yard loss by Broncos linebacker Jonathan Cooper, the second sack Jackson took in the game.

Jackson went into the blue medical tent at the start of the second quarter and then immediately to the locker room. He was originally declared questionable to return, but ruled out at halftime.

Though Jackson hasn't missed any games this season, he was sidelined for the final four games of last season due to an ankle injury. Once again, Tyler Huntley was thrust into action and played well.

Huntley completed 27 of 32 passes for 187 yards and ran 10 times for a team-leading 41 yards. He scored the game-winning touchdown on a 2-yard plunge into the end zone with 28 seconds left.

It was Huntley's first action of this season, but he played well in four starts and seven games last season, which helped him step back into the spotlight again. His first pass of Sunday's game went for a 22-yard completion to Mark Andrews as the Ravens moved into position for a field goal.
